    No worries Bill. Looking forward to the watch.

    even if there is a possibility of an acrylic insert, I'm still holding out hope!! I definitely think that would be the icing on the cake. There is a guy who is making inserts for the old 6542's He sells them on EBay, his are made of Lexan, They look pretty good. I believe his EBay name is oldferarri.

    Big THANK YOU for still investigating this. An optional upsell or addition at the end makes sense. As a spare would be good for those who want to switch to aluminum for "rough wear."

    Maybe we could try this as a third party project? I know it would be a thankless burden on someone but there are definitely people on the MKII forum I would trust with a pre-pay.

    To give us hope? Or to turbocharge the anticipation? It really is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!

    Re: Project GMT: Name discussion

    My heart skipped a beat :) after seeing the dials on page 9. Hoping to get my hands on a few of these.
